Well, I got another last week and thought I'd show my entire Pointer Date collection (4 !).
First the 'new' one - a Rodana. : BTW, Rodana changed its name to Rodania. Altivo shows a 1949 ad with 'Rodana' and a 1952 ad with 'Rodania'. See
So its fair to say this was pre - 1952.
I was hoping the black mark at 5 - 6 was just dirt, but its a paint scratch. Anyway, it works well and was pretty cheap.
Movement looks to be an FHF 175-3 without shock protection.
This is my Rimla - a fairly obscure brand:
It has a Venus 208 movement.
Roamer with day as well:
Featuring an 17J MST 416. This had a slipping canon pinion on arrival - hence cheap. But I've had it fully serviced since. Hence not so cheap.
And my recently posted Stowa:
with its Osco 42 CLD:
It would be nice to see some other date pointers if anyone has one or two.
